After we requested to meet San Diego Sockers forward Max Touloute, he invited us to his home. He shared with us the story of what brought him and his family to the United States from Haiti.
We talked about his experience playing for two years in Iceland before returning to the U.S. where he signed with the Pennsylvania Roar. Max then moved to the Missouri/Kansas City Comets. He was with the Comets as they won the last MISL3 championship. He continued to play with the Comets in the first year of the MASL. That season they dominated the opposition en route to an undefeated 20-0 regular season, only to be eliminated before the Ron Newman Cup finals.
Now with the San Diego Sockers, Max Touloute brings his unique style of play to the field.
Max is an extraordinarily humble man that engenders an extreme degree of trust and comfort. He couldn’t have been more gracious to myself and my production crew (my son and my fiancee’) while in his home.
At the conclusion of the interview, Max introduces the viewers to a cause that he represents, Lily’s League. Lily’s League collects donations of lightly used soccer gear, focusing mostly on shoes for under privileged kids in hardshipped areas around the world. Of course we encourage that you make every attempt to support this cause.
It was my huge pleasure to have had this chance to spend a short time with one of the MASL’s most affable personalities.
